Data science provides powerful approaches for transforming large and complex data into information, knowledge, and intelligent decisions. Data science is a field at the intersection of statistics, computer science, mathematics, and real world application domains.
Can big data make the world a better place? Big data may bring greater safety, health, convenience and economic opportunity, yet it may also be used to produce inequality, discrimination and violation of privacy. Data science students at John Carroll University are motivated to explore the complex relationships between data, technology, and society. Our program utilizes an interdisciplinary approach with a focus on Statistics, Computer Science, and Mathematics applied to a specific discipline such as Exercise Science, Psychology, Communications, or Digital Humanities.
